In addition to fine art, there will be a vegetarian potluck, live music, and an opportunity to come together with community.
Karen K Redding, is a fine art photographer, is a resident of Laguna Beach and avid world traveler. Karen’s background as a psychotherapist and dharma/meditation teacher at InsightLA, inspires a deep relationship to her subject and offers a reflective interpretation of what she sees.
Travels Through Humanity is the name of her growing body of photographic work, taken in remote places throughout the world. It has received attention in several art exhibits in Southern California.
This body of work, called AWAKENING, features compelling images of sacred places photographed in Sri Lanka, India, and the Kingdom of Bhutan. The work hopes to transport each of us to those sacred places that connect us to our essential Buddha nature and common humanity when we can meet ourselves and each other in a more kind and compassionate way.
Cayce Howe is a Senior Dharma/Meditation Teacher for InsightLA, and is a primary teacher at their Long Beach chapter. Cayce’s meditation practice and study spans over 25 years, including living and working for nearly 6 years in meditation retreat settings and participating in a one year retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Cayce has dedicated himself to assisting others in discovering the benefits of meditation.
He hopes that his art can support the direct realization of the true nature of all things- love.
“Art of the 3 Kayas
All of the art you will find is a combination of only 3 colors. The colors represent the “Three Kayas” in Tibetan Buddhism.
Dharmakaya- Formless Realm
Sambhogakaya- Light, Energy Realm
Nirmanakaya- Form Realm
The art itself can be used as a tool for meditation, an entry or doorway to direct experience.
Each piece represents the dance between the formless realm of unity, the dualistic characteristics of form and the light energy that allows us to walk between the two.”
